Wedding cakes, cupcakes and cake pops. The cake represents the last opportunity for 'interaction' with the guests, after which guests in a hurry are permitted to leave, and the others to let loose.
The wedding cake can be inspired by a season, a color, a theme or a certain location. It can have round, square or cylindrical layers, but, above all, it should be overstated, ironic and photogenic. Just like a star.
In the beginning there was Linda Christian and Tyrone Power, newlyweds in Rome in 1949 in the Santa Francesca Romana Church. These two actors were the trailblazers, and now, for many foreigners, to get married in Italy became a romantic dream to realize.
The most imitated? The wedding between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who tied the knot in 2006 in the Odelscalchi Castle in Bracciano. Woodie Allen and Soon-Yi chose Venice, Sofia Coppola the Basilicata region, and Salento for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.

About a year ago Elke Vanelderen (tv & radio personality) knocked on door of the Raffaelli Atelier asking to design her wedding dress. After hearing her ideas about her dream dress the designers went immediately to work. After a year of close collaboration the result is magnificent, as expected! The combination of luxurious fabrics, tule and swarovski crystals make this bridal dress an unique creation.
